Dorothy was a person who made you feel important. No matter where you met her, she always had a big smile and kind remarks. We sat with her in church frequently and enjoyed her company. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

My condolences to Dorothy Hill's family. Dorothy and I had been very good friends for 75 years. I thank God for the 5 minutes I got to see her in the hospital. We told each other how much we loved each other and recalled special memories. I know she is in a better place and not suffering. I have loved all the family for many years. See you later, Dorothy.

Your Mother and Father have been our good friends from the early days at Southcrest Baptist Church (1950s & 60ss). Dorothy has remembered us at Christmas and special times for at least 50 years. What a sweet and special Christian lady!! She will be missed by a lot of folks.
May God bless you with nice memories as you pass a wonderful Christian heritage to your children. Blessings, R.C. & Nita Littlefield

Sid & Terry, your mother was a lovely lady. She was really a second mother to me all during high school and then a special friend all these years since. I know you can take comfort that she is in a much better place now. LeeAnn and I send you and your families our thoughts, prayers and love.
